Overall the TP-Link Archer D7 1750AC Router is a bit of a mixed bag. It comes with an ADSL modem built-in, unfortunately, this isn’t compatible with Virgin Media Fiber Optic connections and Internet speeds over ADSL will be limited to 24Mbps. I don’t feel like it adds much to the product and could have been left out.
LAN speeds are pretty good for a router in this price bracket. The Archer D7 isn’t actually far off the slightly more expensive Archer D9 in terms of performance. While there is a significant performance dip between our short-range and long-range results, we still managed to achieve decent speeds over the network.
While you will find everything you need inside of the box, in the future I would like to see some longer leads, particularly a longer power cable as the one included heavily limits exactly where you can put the router, which isn’t ideal.
The TP-Link Archer D7 1750AC Router can be found over at Overclockers UK for £119.99. This price likely could have been lowered a bit if the ADSL modem component was taken out.
